Praise

“Enjoy this tale in iambic pentameter, for it has all the necessary aspects of any Shakespeare play – the betrayal, the hope, the tragedy...This book is necessary for any Star Wars fan’s collection.”—Geeks of Doom  

“William Shakespeare and “Star Wars” collide in the most delightful fashion.”—McClatchy Tribune  

“Witty and stylish, The Phantom of Menace is neither campy nor silly, but a finely-crafted work of art.”—Examiner.com

Book Description

Experience the Star Wars saga reimagined as an Elizabethan drama penned by William Shakespeare himself, complete with authentic meter and verse, and theatrical monologues and dialog by everyone from Darth Maul to Obi-Wan Kenobi.

The entire saga starts here, with a thrilling tale featuring a disguised queen, a young hero, and two fearless knights facing a hidden, vengeful enemy.

Authentic meter, stage directions, reimagined movie scenes and dialogue, and hidden Easter eggs throughout will entertain and impress fans of Star Wars and Shakespeare alike. Every scene and character from the film appears in the play, along with twenty woodcut-style illustrations that depict an Elizabethan version of the Star Wars galaxy. O Threepio, Threepio, wherefore art thou, Threepio?

"Witty and stylish, The Phantom of Menace is neither campy nor silly, but a finely-crafted work of art."—Examiner.com
